I am pleased I got to the bottom of it with Mikeb’s help. Sorry to hear about your Cumana Reborn issues HigashiJun, hope it works okay from now on.
Thank you. No worries, it works fine now.

Re: My new Cumana drive ;)

In my case, the USB pendrive was corrupted hence the weird screen... I have - just in case - reflashed the bootloader and then the firmware then erased the contents of the pendrive. Once done, all my games were copied back to the pendrive and everything works as before. You could try that and if it ...

Re: My new Cumana drive ;)

Hello Zaxon, I would have a question concerning the Cumana Drive I bought from you. Mine was working fine (connected to one of my Atmos) but suddenly one day, the screen started to display weird characters on only one half of it... Is this a problem related to the BIOS chip and is there a way to ge...

Re: TSN 1-2450A instead of LM7905

I'm sorry to hear that...

It's quite weird.

Did you receive the right part, ie. TSN 1-2450A and not another one (TSN 1-24150A) ?

Re: Monitor or TV?

If you happen to find some old Commodore Amiga CRT monitors, they generally have a super good picture quality. Some don't have SCART, but they accept easily RGB signal, and the pinout of the DB-9 connector is available, you can just direct- connect the pins without any resistors or added power and ...

Re: Monitor or TV?

SCART is not mandatory anymore in France since 2015 (don't know in UK though...). So if you live in France, old TV sets will have it but not newer ones. There's no SCART where I live but I use the cable you mentioned in your post combined with other stuff as stated in the post below: http://forum.de...

Re: Help with two Orics

Thank you mikeb ! My bad, I have just realized that my Atmos has two factory ELCAP 74HCT04 (and not 74HC04)... I think this chip is not a problem according to the following page: http://ecomorder.com/techref/postbot.asp?by=thread&id=Difference+between+74HC04+and+74LS04&w=body&tgt=top where it says t...

Re: Help with two Orics

So you guys think it's better to stay with the 74LS04 ? My actual Atmos (I'm still repairing) has a factory 74HC04 soldered in. As I think it's faulty, I'm about to replace it with the same reference. I've also seen Orics with 74F04 (but not 74S04), but I heard somewhere that 74HC04 works flawlessly...

Re: Oric cleaning :)

Yes, I think this Atmos was placed somewhere in direct sunlight for a long period...

Never had Oric-1s, but they always seem very clean and not yellowed at all on auction sites.

Re: TSN 1-2450A instead of LM7905

It's really worth it... The Oric stays very cool. You should definitely give it a try.
